EARLY CLOSING OF STORES.
Arrangement May Be Adopted Here
After the Holidays.
Clerks in Hancock stores may have
an oppoi l uuit.v lo enjoy e arly 'closing
Immediately .liter Chrlstnrn. Several
men-hunts have been fx isc.issiug the
matter and if the consent cf u few-
more can be secured, the Mores
not wait until uftc-r the l ist of
eur to adopt li o'clock closing.
Hancock merchants have gone on
icvord as favoring early closing the
ear round with the exception id' Mon
day and Saturday evenings and the
lirst three weeks in December, the
period allotted for Christmas shopping.
It Is the contention of the merchanls
favoring this move that none of the
stores will lose linanclally if they 'los
at o'clock, that the pillule will soc-u
become educated to the s.vstem and
do its buying during the day as easily
as at night.
The clerks, the ones lo beuctit lin
iter such an arrangement, will be asked
to assist In Hie campaign. The nut
thaiits realize the clerks do much to
ward bringing this about by urgui,'
(heir parents und friends to buy In
Die afternoon instead of waiting until
evening. The clerks will expect, to
work a little harder during the time
they are on duty but thi they arv
satistled to tin if they are not asked
to return after supper.
Christmas having U starting earlier
tills year than usual and It lookj as
though the real big rush will not be
felt the last few days, before Cin ijt
mas. Tlio stores have arranged lo
employ additional heip when found
necessary so Hie public need huv no
lear "f being compelled to stand round
the stores waiting for i;ervlcc.

Cashier cf First National Bank a Pris
oner for Few Minutes.
W. li. Thompson, cashier of the Hist
National bank of Uncock, had tins
pleasure, if It may be called vuil., of
being locked in the l.irre vault of tin
new bank for a few minutes yesterday
afternoon while the workmen were
testing the vault.
Superintendent I'ied' l. in charge of
the construction work on the Interior
of the bank, wished to test the bolts
on the vault and as Mr. Thompson
happened to be inside the vault ex
uminiug it he asked him If he would
like the experience of being locked
up for a few minuts. When Mr.
Thompson learned that it would bo for
a few minutes only, he agreed and was
locked in the massive vault.
The vault Is an immense affair nnd
If a person were really locked up In It
he would have no chunce of ever get
ting out alive if kept in for a few
hours. The heavy doom and sides to
th vault are so thick that It is es
timated It would take 24 hours to drill
through them and bv this time any
person within would have su.cumbed.
